miami, so we had little snakes in massachusetts and not much fun at all. i've written two books now about words, always wanted to write a book about words, alphabet juice and alphabetter juice. i was stoned into doing this by reading a textbook of length with sticks, the notion of the connection between words and their meaning is arbitrary, which doesn't make any sense to me. that would mean that splurge and stint could mean the same thing. stint is a tight little word and splurge is like that. and i think that words have a lot to do with -- not all worlds but lots of words, the best words -- i'll give you an example -- have to do with how they move through your body. this is a little indelicate, but dave has already said shit. that's because there was a python body behind him. he has a reason. i didn't think he was shot. so, okay, the word piss. i was reading a -- somebody analyzing the word urinate. said it cam from the latin word urinory to urinate, that was the formal literary latin word, and the street latin, regular people used the word pissary, from which we get our word piss

in schools overseas. i have met with recovering veterans at home in massachusetts. i have met with them at walter reed. they want very simply a world where they can be independent, go out and fend for themselves where they can travel abroad to work or study or vacation, and they should never have to worry about whether the disabilities sustained fighting on our behalf are going to prevent them from accessing the classroom, a workplace, a hotel, or transportation overseas. like all people with disabilities, they deserve a world where they can fully participate in the global economy on equal terms without fear of discrimination or loss of dignity. joining the disabilities treaty will also expand opportunities for american students with disabilities, who need to be able study abroad to prepare themselves to compete in the global economy. i want you to take the example of a person who is one of the outstanding interns at the state department. she is here today. she is a graduate student with dreams of a career in foreign affairs. she happens to also be deaf. two years ago she traveled

very conservative party in the nominating process in his conservative from massachusetts, which is different than being a conservative for texas for example. so he talked about that. the most interesting part was when we got to the 47% comment that everybody knows about it was a crippling moment. i don't think it was a decisive moment in the campaign, but a crippling moment because it crystallized the argument that the obama campaign has been making about him, that he was a wealthy plutocrats who is out of touch with ordinary americans and did not understand the lives of any of the kinds of people george reported on in the unwinding. when we talked about this time i said to him -- he said but i was trying to save the country is polarized. 47% will vote for me in 47% will vote for the president and there's nothing i can do to get them. i said the use of these are people who feel completely dependent and feel government owes them something and they will never take control of their own minds. he said i didn't say that. he jumped up and we were in his home outside of boston. he jumped
